SENIORS

Seniors…3 must-do tasks for this fall!

  1. Apply to your top college choices. LSW participates in Nebraska’s Apply2College campaign on October 5th, where you will get help with your college applications during a school-day event.
  2. Create an FSA ID. You and a parent must each create a username and password at fsaid.ed.gov that will serve as your Federal Student Aid (FSA) IDs for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You will each need your own email address to create an FSA ID.
  3. Complete the FAFSA at fafsa.gov on or after October 1. The FAFSA is your application for federal, state, and college-based financial aid. The colleges you list on the application will use that information to determine the types and amounts of financial aid they will award you.

While each Scholar brings their own skill sets, strengths, and personalities to the program, they share the following traits:

Purposeful Leadership

Intellectual Curiosity

Strength of Character

Collaborative Spirit
